I hope not, that'd be dangerous for Apple considering how many stupid people there are. The "Purchased" page is searchable, though, if you know what you're looking for.

I know you can "hide" songs on the iTunes music Library on a computer, at least.

@Flamingr1ft - I saw those J-Pop "covers" as well. I believe they're legal, but they aren't very good. Make sure you look specifically for the artists and not just their songs...

P.T. revealed as new Silent Hill from Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro starring Norman Reedus -- Gematsu

This could be either the beginning of something great or another embarrassing blunder for Silent Hill.

....I'm sorry, what? That sounds like one of those over-the-top rumors you'd read on seedy blogs before E3. This...will definitely be something to see. But, as you said, whether or not it'll be glorious or gloriously tragic only time will tell.

Crap, I just remembered that one of the reasons I got a fancy computer was for Rift. I dunno if I have time for it anymore with my Job, but I might download it at least, get that and the patches out of the way, so I'm ready when I do have some time. It definitely seems really cool to me.

I'm not big on either game, but Temple of Osiris definitely interests me more.

Got a Saturn, so I guess I'll invest some time in Albert Odyssey (which I already have). Haven't played an RPG in a while...

I still like 08th MS Team more, but yeah, it's pretty great, IMO.

They used to. They used to...

Gundam had great dubs, too. It's a shame we won't get Turn A gundam officially subbed any time soon. IIRC, the fansubs were decent, though, so it might be worth checking them out someday. IIRC, Turn A gundam was slow to get going, but was great once they were headed into space.

Also, I still like to watch Dubs when I can and Funimation does great dubs, usually.

On the contrary, it's kind of hard to look down on someone who has a profession such as accounting the way people do when you work (barely above) minimum wage in retail.

I know several accountants. I hate to to burst your bubble, but no one likes accountants...

Oh, right, I saw this last week, I think. Wasn't really that impressed before, not impressed now. I prefer stuff that at least tries to be its own thing.

Barrage seemed really awesome to me. Like, potentially everything I could've wanted from a manga awesome. It had a fantastic set up, at least, but all they got to do was set up before it got canned...

Oh yeah, the Beginning of Bleach was Fantastic. Naruto (as in the first series) was good, but it just doesn't handle the slow moments well, and sometimes its comedy is just way too childish for my tastes. But Bleach...if it was able to follow up the soul society arc in a much better fashion than it did, I think it would've ended up being a classic. The whole Aizen thing was a huge turn-off for me...

Well I don't count that section because it's so heavily scripted. I felt like I might as well have been watching a movie rather than actually playing the game. In fact, it wasn't really playing until you leave to go to Figaro (that submarine castle. That was Figaro, right?) that I felt like I was actually engaged, though I suppose that psuedo-RTS section required some effort...I guess...

What was the last Koei-published game that didn't offer dual audio (or at least Japanese audio) at some point?
1305  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs that All Children Should Play on: August 06, 2014, 01:43:04 PM
From my experience, Kids are much more persistant than adults. Persistance =/= patience, though. I think a game for kids should be quick to get into, or at least start off with a bang, like how FF7 starts off with a rather neat dugeon, giving you only a short intro as to who you are and why you're doing it, culminating in a rather gimmicky boss fight and a Super Metroid-like Speed-Backtrack-so-you-don't-blow-up kinda thing. Whereas Final Fantasy 6 spent, like, a half-hour at least before you could actually do anything.

Or like how my first real RPG was the original Final Fantasy that I found on a website. It literally dropped you into the game with barely any info whatsoever, and I knew jack squat as to how to play. Hell, I didn't even know the basics of equipment management, and the NES version didn't tell you much in the shops, IIRC. It was all supposed to be in a manual I didn't have. But I learned. After 3 hours of dying against freakin' Goblins, I learned. I experiemented, I explored, I extrapolated, and I eventually started talking to the townsfolk, which turned out to be much more helpful than I expected...but eventually I beat the first boss and felt like a freakin' champion. I've seen this quite a bit with kids. So long as it isn't boring, they'll keep at things, just because. It's like how some kids could beat Mega Man back in the day. They weren't gonna let the game beat them. If there's a problem, more than likely they'll find some way to solve it, even if it involves searching or asking for a little help.
